The FLA is a collaborative effort between several actors, including governments, researchers, national and international experts, Partners, and the OECD Secretariat.
Government representatives are actively participating in the design of the assessment and framework, in the choice of the policy questions they expect the assessment to answer and in the design of the questionnaires through workshops, written feedback, and online meetings.
Researchers and experts are providing inputs, advice and guidance throughout all the stages of the assessment design and development.
The PISA 2025 Foreign Language Assessment is relying on the feedback, inputs and advice from a group of recognised experts in the fields of foreign language assessment and foreign language teaching and learning. These experts are participating in different phases of the project.
The test is being developed in a partnership with Cambridge Assessment English.
The OECD Secretariat has a coordinating role of all the above actors as well as with the PISA Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and the contractors for PISA 2025 who will be in charge of implementing the assessment.
The European Commission follows the development of the test closely, assisting with expertise built on previous work at EU level and the European Framework of Reference for Language Competences. The EU is also co-funding the technical design of the assessment, the development of the framework and the contextual questionnaires, as well as a pilot run of the test.
